Don't believe the T bars will crank up enough to level it out with the extra inch you add to the rear. Best way to go is a lift kit, sure it's $$$ but our shop fits 35's with a rancho 4" kit, that's with 8" wide wheels. We just did a new GMC Dmax this way last Friday, the T bars are usually set at 3-4 turns above stock. Mine is this way, will have pics soon(when I figure out this new camera and software)
